Inclement Weather Detours will adhere to Metro's Snow Detour list and be posted to Metro's Detour Blog

Detours and service changes are a normal part of any dynamic transit system. Metro uses the detours when construction, special events, traffic or inclement weather prevents us from following our regular route.

Metro detours are produced by Metro's Radio Communications Center employees who are in direct contact with Metro's bus operators and street supervisors.
